The picture shows women holding up copies of the newspaper Zaman, while protesting the arrest of the paper's managing editor who was arrested in 2014.

But that was not enough apparently, and now Turkish court has instead simply seized the newspaper.

Turkish court has decided to take over the administration of the daily newspaper Zaman, which is critical of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, reports the state news agency Anatolia.

This means that the court will appoint new managers of the newspaper.

The newspaper is closely linked to Erdogan's arch-rival, the US-based preacher Fethullah Gulen.

The decision comes at a time of increasing concern over freedom of expression in Turkey.

It is not immediately clear how Zaman's sister publication, Today's Zaman, which is in English, will be affected.
